Research international car shipping companies to see which one you would like to employ. Numerous companies will ship your car to Holland so check with several of them to see which one would be best for your particular needs. Many companies even have a few options among ways to ship your car such as container shipping or roll on, roll off. In container shipping your car will be loaded into a 20 to 40 foot container at a regional warehouse or port and your car will be tied down to prevent movement.
